Back from a busy camping weekend! I hastefully took advantage of the good Sunday weather, I cut and split some wood, put the damper on my stove pipe, and cleaned up the area around my yurt a little, there is still much to be done, and the season is growing shorter by the day....

I figured I would get some mice, but so soon I was surprised, looks like one has decided to make my Yurt his very nice home!
Here is a little tour of my Yurt, still having water problems, and its sure getting cold, I relise that the firebox in my stove is not big enough to keep a fire going through the night.... I am going to have to start looking into other options

Due to some poor planning on my part, while I was away in sudbury today for work my yurt floor flooded fairly good... I rigged somthing up hopefully it works for the time being, its been raining hard for the past 24 hours and has just started to let up now, I am going to be away most of the weekend but will have to make sure everything will be fine before I leave.

Last night a came out with Dawna to work on my insulation, around midnight her dog started freaking out barking etc, she decided to let him out neither of us thought much of it thinking it was only a deer or bear cub, needless to say vagabond got a mouth full of porcupine, we ended back in town to call the vet, he told us that vaga would be fine if left alone till morning then to bring him in, he got all fixed up today and is certainly a sad doggy, get well soon vagabond!!
Just finished eating a nice oven roasted pasta, and relaxing while the storm rolls in, there is suppose to be crazy winds and rain so I came out to tie down th hatches and see how the yurt holds up.

Kijiji is one of the best tools for anyone starting/working/or planning any project, I have had so much luck with using this site its unbelievable, including the land I am leasing for this yurt project!! Last week while browsing I found something amazing....
The pedal, the wheels and the machine seem to work great, I am going to clean it out a little then test it out as soon as I can! I have no doubts that it works like a charm!

The most important thing is I completed my large yurt!! I made some mistakes with my math and once it started to go up it turned out to be 18 feet in diameter rather then 24, so I had to readjust a few things…. But its beautiful!!
